This extension blocks angry and sad pages. It protects you from the worst the internet has to offer.
Or at least gives you a peaceful moment to reflect before embarking on an emotional roller coaster.
Angry Blocker is deep learning's answer to propaganda. In this post-truth modern world with endless alternative facts it's very easy to get over emotional, form false judgements, and lose control of our decisions. When we allow emotions to blindly force us to do something we become vulnerable to propaganda. In 2016, both ends of the political spectrum used emotionally charged headlines to influence public opinion on Brexit and Donald Trump. Such news is dangerous when it leads us to make choices we wouldn't have made in our normal emotional state.
Therefore Angry Blocker protects you from negative emotions and helps you to be aware of the type of information you consume online. When you visit selected media websites, Angry Blocker's proprietary deep neural network estimates the emotional content of the page which you are about to read and warns you about very sad and angry pages. Instead of the angry content, you will see a nice picture from nature and a message like "This page is too angry for you" with links to "Go back", "See it anyway" or view some better news on our website. Then it's up to you to decide whether to read those pages or not.
We hope that Angry Blocker will improve your mood, and go some small way to improving the internet and maybe even the world.
